Focus On Intention, Accelerate Results

Posted by:

How big is your intention span? If you made any new year’s resolutions this is critical for seeing them through. So often we hear about having a short attention span, meaning we are easily distracted. That won’t help you achieve goals.

But it’s the intention span that really makes a difference if you’re trying to adopt a new habit, achieve a longer term aim, or even stay focused on one specific project.

Daily Laughers – Be One In a Million in 2016

Posted by:

Happy New Year, dear reader, and may your 2016 be filled with good health and abundant joy!

One thing that supports both of those goals is laughing, even on purpose without any jokes or humor. You may already be aware that “unconditional laughter” is the premise of the global health craze called laughter yoga. This is central to the book I co-wrote last year with Kelley T.

Reward Yourself

Posted by:

Do you prefer carrot or stick? Do you move toward pleasure or away from pain? Maybe it depends on the situation.

Last week was tough for me but it brought me an insight about punishment and reward.

One HUGE Tip to Reduce Stress

Posted by:

I can’t stress this too much. But I can over EMPHA-SIZE it. In fact, inflating the size of something is one way we often create stress. We say things like “this is a disaster,” “what a nightmare,” or “that was the worst xyz ever.”

The floods in Colorado this week are a disaster. Most of the time, our personal challenges are more like a speed bump.

Recurring flashbacks to combat, accidents or assaults are nightmares. When things don’t go our way, that’s ...
